The Interdisciplinary Perspectives of Accreditation Ask Me Anything Discussion Den provides a platform for high-level academic discourse. This is a special invitation for key administrative and faculty such as deans of arts and sciences or directors of technology that are involved in interdisciplinary roles merging social sciences and technology, to engage in a dialectical exploration of the value of accreditation across diverse disciplines. Discussion prompts such as “what is the value of accreditation across different disciplines?” and “how is accreditation being prioritized (or not) by administration and faculty in various disciplines” will serve as a launch point for open discussion.
Each Discussion Den brings ABET thought leaders together with Symposium attendees for an informal and enlightening discussion on a specific topic. These are organic conversations. There is no agenda or PowerPoint presentation. The audience’s questions and experiences build an inquisitive conversation that the group leaders guide with their insight and expertise.
Discussion Dens allow attendees to learn from the group leaders as well as from the questions and experiences of their peers.
